anatomy trains book cover

Book description:

Understanding the role of fascia in healthy movement and postural distortion is of vital importance to bodyworkers and movement therapists. “Anatomy Trains: Myofascial Meridians for Manual and Movement Therapists” presents a unique whole systems view of myofascial/locomotor anatomy in which the bodywide connections among the muscles within the fascial net are described in detail for the first time. Using the metaphor of railway or train lines, Myers explains how patterns of strain communicate through the myofascial webbing, contributing to postural compensation and movement stability. Written in a style that makes it easy to understand and apply, “Anatomy Trains” provides an accessible and comprehensive explanation of the anatomy and function of the myofascial system in the body. The DVD ROM in the back of the book contains video of techniques, Anatomy Trains-based dissections and computer animations of the myofascial meridian lines.
Press comment:

“Anatomy Trains champions a wider scope of the body and it’s movement systems.” — Gray Cook MSPT, OSPT, CSCS, Developer of the Functional Movement Screen “The Anatomy Trains metaphor is a revelation; a way of seeing the body’s interconnectedness more clearly, offering new physiological and anatomical perspectives, and therefore different clinical choices. Quite simply the content of this book is revolutionary.” — Leon Chaitow ND DO, Honorary Fellow, University of Westminster, Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Bodywork & Movement Therapies “Clinicians, researchers and educators alike will find this an invaluable text, which leads to new insights on each reading.? — Thomas Findley MD PhD, Professor of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey; Editor-in Chief, International Journal of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork: Research, Education and Practice “This book is an eclectic overview of many strands of information garnered from at least a dozen disparate sources. Its format is young, light, and easy on the eye, and is a book of the 21st Century – it may well be a template for future texts.” The Osteopath, October/November 2009
